Barnsley picked up their fourth win in five league outings with this comfortable 3-0 home win over Yorkshire rivals Bradford.
Three of those victories have been accompanied by clean sheets with this one being their 12th of the season - the most they have kept in the league since 2016-2017 (14)
The Reds have the best defensive record in the division after conceding just 22 goals, three less than the next nearest - Portsmouth, Luton, Sunderland and Blackpool who have all conceded 25.
Barnsley were two goals to the good at half time here thanks to efforts from Jacob Brown and a wonderful team effort finished off by Kieffer Moore - it is the sixth time the Reds have been two goals ahead by the break, it is the most times in one campaign that they have led by at least two goals since their League One promotion season of 2005-2006 (also 6)
Jacob Brown's opener after 28 minutes was his third goal for the club, but the first at Oakwell. Barnsley have won all three games in which Brown has netted (Fleetwood 3-1, Peterborough 4-0, Bradford 3-0)
Kieffer Moore made it 2-0 after 38 minutes at the end of a wonderful one touch passing move involving seven one-touch passes including Moore's close range finish. Moore now has 12 League One goals this season, he managed 13 for Rotherham last season before his January switch to Oakwell and the Championship.
Moore has scored in ten games now in all competitions this season, of which Barnsley have won eight, drawn one and lost one, this was however the first time he had scored in seven appearances - prior to this he had netted in five out of six.
The three goals only involved three players as Alex Mowatt (who scored the third) and Jacob Brown were also involved in the goals they did not score with Mowatt supplying the final balls for Brown and Moore and then Brown nodding down into Mowatt's path for the final goal.
It is the ninth and tenth times this season that a Reds player has both scored and assisted in the same match this season (all comps) and is the second successive home game that two players have both scored and assisted as Mamadou Thiam and Brad Potts also did so in the 2-1 win over Charlton.
Mowatt now has 11 assists for the season and is the first Barnsley player to provide two assists in one game since George Moncur in the 4-0 win at Peterborough in October.
Remarkably Brown and Mowatt both scored, assisted and were booked, the first time this has occurred since Dimitri Cavaré did so in the 2-2 draw at Scunthorpe in August.
Bradford's Adam Chicksen saw red for bringing Brown down when clean through in the 89th minute, the second Oakwell game in a row that the opponent has had a man sent off after Charlton's Chris Solly in the 96th minute.
It is the fourth red card in a Barnsley game this season (all comps)
In total there were seven cards shown by referee Jeremy Simpson (4 for Barnsley, 3 for Bradford) - there has been 15 cards shown in Barnsley's last two home games.
Bradford will be sick of the sight of Barnsley, as this was the third time this season they have been defeated by them. The Bantams are the first team Barnsley have defeated three times in the same season since Millwall in 2015-2016 (both league meetings and the play-off final)
The Reds have now won each of their last five matches against the Bantams, their best ever winning run against them.
Barnsley have gone unbeaten in their first two league games of a calendar year without conceding a goal for the second successive year however this is the first time they have gone the first three matches in all competitions in a calendar year without conceding from open play since 1996 when they started the year with two 0-0s and a 1-0 win.
Bradford have only managed four goals in their last nine meetings with Barnsley in all comps, and have gone four league meetings without a goal.
Barnsley are now unbeaten in their last 21 matches at Oakwell in all competitions (W12 D9), their longest run at home since May 1968 (23 games).
They are also unbeaten in 17 home games (all comps) from the start of a season for the first time since that 1967-1968 campaign when they went unbeaten at Oakwell all season.
The Reds have the third best home record in League One, with only Sunderland and Luton also unbeaten on their own patch in the league - Sunderland however were knocked out of both the League Cup and FA Cup at the Stadium of Light.
Barnsley have opened the scoring 15 times in 25 League One matches this season and remain unbeaten when this has occurred (W13 D2)
It is also the 12th time they have led at half-time this season, and have won all 12!
Barnsley have dropped only four points from winning positions this season, only Southend (3) and Luton (2) have dropped fewer.
This was the tenth time Barnsley have scored in both halves of a league game this season, the most in a single campaign since 2016-2017 (12)
This was Barnsley's 12th league clean sheet of the season - their most since keeping 14 in 2016-2017.
Barnsley enjoyed the majority of the ball possession (57%) - for the 33rd time this season
Bradford had only two shots, none of which were on target... EXACTLY the same as in the reverse fixture back in August. These are the only two occasions this season in any competition that Barnsley's opponents have failed to register a shot on target.
There were 14,962 at Oakwell, Barnsley's biggest home crowd of the season and the largest since Sheffield United's visit in April 2017 (16,041)

Bradford manager David Hopkin said:
“We started the first 25 minutes well. Our shape and system was working fine and we were on the front foot.
“We got a few quality balls into the box to try and create something and we did through a number of corners.
“But we switched off and the players have got to do better with the goal.
“All of a sudden you are 1-0 down, which invites the second in a short space of time.
“We went into the break two down. You cannot go to a place like Barnsley and give them those opportunities if you want to take points from the game.
